Fun and challenging for children aged 2 to 5
If your child is between 2 to 5 years of age, they’re ready for our Preschool Swim program! Both fun and challenging, this six-level program offers flexible entry and exit points based on your child’s age, ability and progress.
Designed to appeal to preschool children, games and activities engage their imagination while they learn important skills and increase their knowledge.
Goggles are recommended for all preschool levels and reusable swim diapers are also required for children under 36 months. Both can be conveniently purchased at our front desk!
This program is for children 2 years of age who are attending independent lessons for the first time. The goal of this level is to increase your child’s comfort in the water.
This level is for children between the ages of 3 to 5 years who are attending their first set of swim lessons, and who have passed the Duck level. The goal of this level is to increase your child’s confidence in the water and encourage underwater exploration.
The Salamander level is the level where you will really start to see your child’s confidence underwater increase! In this level, your child will be encouraged to accomplish skills with independence.
The Sunfish level is often referred to as “the kicking level”! This level is designed to teach your child propulsion by learning how to flutter kick through the water. We will move your child through several progressions until they are moving independently in the water for a distance of 5 metres.
Your child will learn a series of new skills that challenge the strength of their kicking by adding arm movement, coordinated breathing, and rolling from their front onto their back. Your child will be learning the building blocks for front crawl!
Basic front crawl is the major focus of this level. In the Whale level, we are encouraging your child to build endurance for a 15 to 25-metre front crawl. Your child will also be practicing entering deep water, supporting themselves at the surface for 20 seconds (treading water) and returning to a point of safety without assistance.
